Lewmar launches many new products in 2009

Lewmar have very recently launched many new products within their specialist marine ranges, to cover every type of boat, from state of the art racing yachts, to superyachts and powerboats.

In the superacht arena, a -400 carbon vang has recently generated a lot of interest amongst naval architects, rig manufacturers and Captains for a top end, lightweight performance solution.

At the same time, Lewmar has just introduced two new windlasses designed for superyacht loads, the V6 and the V8, using Lewmar’s engineered WARP (wear and abrasion resistant pattern) system. At the opposite end of the size range is the new V Sport windlass for any type of boat, power or sail from 28 - 40’ LOA. To operate the complete range of windlasses, the new deck switches have been introduced in a special low-profile design.

Performance racing yachts, can now benefit from the latest design carbon fibre pedestal which is lighter and stiffer. Also for the top end racing fleets is the new 8 inch version of the hugely successful One Touch winch handle and for those who are inclined to lose handles over the side, there is a lightweight, new floating winch handle, the composite LiteTouch.

NAVTEC, Lewmar’s Rigging Division will be promoting their continuous ultra lightweight version of standing rigging, in filament winding PBO. This development represents the latest and most efficient composite rigging solution as seen on the current Vendée Globe.

The latest design deckgear, the new range of flush Portlights, and even a mini captive winch for smaller yachts up to 40 feet LOA. have been on display at METS and Paris Boat Shows. Visit Lewmar website http://www.lewmar.com to view these innovative new products.
